Around the same time he was working on the Ant Chair, Arne Jacobsen first came up with the Fritz Hansen Dot Stool. The version here was developed later in 1970, with four legs as opposed to the original three. This lightweight, stackable stool features a wood veneer seat (available in a variety of colors) and chromed steel legs.
Established in 1872 in Copenhagen, Fritz Hansen has since come to epitomize the mid-century Danish Modern aesthetic. Blending craftsmanship with innovation, Fritz Hansen is particularly well-noted for their laminated and molded wood veneer furniture. Pieces from Vico Magistretti, Piero Lissoni and, especially, Arne Jacobsen have become icons of modern furniture design.
The Dot Stool is available with the following:
- Shell made of laminated, pressure molded veneer
- Beech inner veneer
- Colored Ash, Beech or Walnut outer veneer
- Chrome finish
- Pressure molded veneer shell
- Outer veneer wood grain is visible
- Legs made of chromed steel tubes with black synthetic feet
- Made in Denmark
- Designed by Arne Jacobsen and Fritz Hansen, 1970
- Item: Height 17.3", Diameter 13.4"
- Fritz Hansen is dedicated to preserving the legacy of their original furniture designs. To this end, all authentic Fritz Hansen products come with a label that has a unique ID number, the name of the designer, the year of manufacture and origin. A personally signed certificate is also included, showing that the piece has gone through Fritz Hansen's premium quality check.
